Brain Tumor is a formation of abnormal, mutated cells in the brain. Primary Brain Tumors (tumors that start in the brain) can be benign – not cancerous tumors that can grow but do not spread to other parts of the body -, or malignant – cancerous tumors that damage the nearby tissue and spread. Secondary Brain Tumors are cancerous tumors that have started elsewhere in the body and spread to the brain.
Dr Vijay Anand Reddy has gained advanced training in the treatment of Brain Tumors at the eminent Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai, as well as at Klinikum Frankfurt Höchst in Germany.
In his long medical practice, Dr. Reddy has planned radiation treatments, devising best radiation treatment techniques, for treatment of all types of brain tumors. The doctor’s particular area of expertise is Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)tumors – primary tumors that start in the brain and are the most common and aggressive type of brain tumors.
One of the most effective ways to treat brain tumors is with Stereotactic Radiotherapy , which targets the tumor very precisely causing least possible damage to the surrounding tissue. This treatment is not available in every hospital since it requires special equipment and highly trained doctors. Dr Reddy is a cancer specialist who has many years of experience with Stereotactic Radiotherapy treating Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) – abnormal connections between arteries and veins -, Acoustic Neuromas – benign primary brain tumors that affect nerves that send sound and balance information from the inner ear to the brain -, and Brain Metastasis – secondary brain tumors that have spread from other parts of the body to the brain.
Dr Reddy has treated more than 500 Brain Tumor patients with incredible success rates. He is regularly invited to major conferences to speak on the subject and has published several articles on Brain Tumors in acclaimed scientific journals.
